Port Zimbali Estate on the Dolphin Coast of KZN was the major initiation point for similar estates that were developed since its completion.
One such estate is the Dunkirk Estate which took its cues from the Port Zimbali Estate with the various criteria like property usage, architecture, footprint, services that are offered like a 24 hour manned access control point and the communal ground that forms part of the aesthetic appeal of the estate.
At first the estate may seem in a remote location but at a mere 30 minutes’ drive to Umhlanga Rocks where many of the commercial sector companies have relocated to, many will forego this minor inconvenience to reside in this prestigious estate as opposed to residential suburbs closer to these nodes.
The mixed property usage of the estate consists of freehold homes , townhouses and townhouse apartments which still fall within the prestigious end of the market. There are of course justifiable factors that determine the property values as mentioned above and this in within market standards for property in estates. Other contributing factors to the pricing structure are the interior finishings which, needless to say, is of the current high fashion end of accessories.
Vacant stands in the estate are available for development at pricing equal to other estates and could be a more affordable option compared with an existing home.
For the people in the prestigious market seeking that touch of exclusivity in a second holiday home Dunkirk Estate should be on the bucket list as the beachfront is nearby along with all the other tourist attractions and amenities.
As the estate develops property values will increase further increasing the appeal of homes in the estate as investment homes.
Dunkirk Estate is serviced by a number of established schools such as Curro Mount Richmore Private School, Ashton International College and Maidstone Primary School.
There are also a number of malls nearby catering for retail needs such as Tiffany’s Shopping Centre, Balito Junction and The Quarter Boutique Shopping Centre.
